adrictan:

To find out what is faster, divide the spur teeth by the pinion teeth. Whichever is lower is faster.

58/24= 2.417
55/25= 2.200

Remember for faster driving you want: smaller pinion, bigger spur

Trug:
The carbon stiffener will stiffen the chassis and reduce flex. This will help your car be more stable in turns, and it should handle better. So yes, it should help. I personally do not have one, so I don't know how much it helps. If you can really secure it well to the chassis, then it should make a decent improvement.

I am trying to get the optional spur gears for my TT-01 and I was wondering. Will the TB02 spur gear set work?

I found tamiya item number 53665 58/55 tt-01
or
935403 61/58/55 for the tb02

tower does not sell the tt01 set but has the tb02 set

Thanks

get on 3Racing and buy everything they offer for the TT-01, then put on some sticky tires and run it.

Default motor mount bearing

Is there supposed to be a bearing to fit inside the motor mount. I'm building a 3Racing carbon fibre chassis and it looks like there should be a bearing. Also, the drive shaft is very wobbly without one. Does anyone know if this is the case ?

Thanks,

If you've changed to the Aluminium shaft, there'll be a space. I was told if you want, you can put a bearing. Just my 2cents.

Do you know what size bearing it needs ? It doesn't appear to be one of the two standard sized ones.

are you talking about a bearing for the rear propeller shaft joint? as the motor mount is one piece, & also houses the prop shaft joint, you do need a bearing for the rear prop shaft joint, otherwise it will be very sloppy & will not turn properly. i know the prop joint is 5mm where the bearing fits onto (not into)

Hi DriftDemon, no I'm looking for a bearing to fit into the motor mount where the prop shaft passes through so that it can hold / support the prop shaft as it isn't secure on its own.

Don't know the size. Anyway, I just let mine be. It still drifts well. I'll try to ask the others and let you know.

The bearing you are referring to is exactly the same size as the bearings that fit into your front/rear knuckles, so if your sourcing a new bearing from you LHS, just take a bearing out of one of your knuckles for measurements...
